How To Use Spirituality To Achieve Your Highest Potential


Take a minute to ask yourself this question: Do you love yourself unconditionally? Be honest. With everyone’s lives always on full display with social media, it’s easier than ever to compare ourselves to others. No matter where you are on your journey, I want to challenge you to continue seeking improvement, but to also be content with where you’re at. Your happiness shouldn’t be an end goal or reward you give yourself for reaching a goal–it should be something we should all strive to achieve NOW. 

I know this is easier said than done. Even today, there are times when my self confidence and self love come into question–but that’s when we all need to dig even deeper for that inspiration to move forward, including myself. 

One way to build an unbreakable self love is to become more empathetic. By cultivating empathy, we not only create more love for others, but for ourselves as well. Our returning guest today is going to tell us how we can grow a deep, unwavering love for ourselves and achieve our highest potential: Erwin McManus. 

My conversation with him was powerful. We discussed how spirituality can be an important piece to reaching our goals, and so much more. No matter where you stand when it comes to spirituality, I think you’ll gain value in the principles and lessons Erwin lays out, so I really hope you find it as insightful as I did. Please help me welcome the one-and-only, Erwin McManus, back to The School of Greatness!
